The behavious seems to have changed between Lion and Mountian Lion; the latter searches *all* folders. However, you can turn the entire feature off by unchecking:
Preferences > Viewing > View Conversations > Include Related Messages
Hope that helps.

You are correct that this changed with Mountain Lion. I have one Mac still running Lion and when I checked it the "Include Related Messages" box is not checked. So I assume that the upgrade to Mountain Lion checked this box during th upgrade process.
I have experimented by unchecking and checking this this option to Include Related Messages. One feature I like is if I have replied to a message the sent reply appears shaded above the message I have replied to in my In Box or any folder/mail box where I move the message.
Bottom line, now that I am getting use to the change, I like it and will leave the Include Related Messages box checked. The only drawback I see is that unrelated messages that have been moved to other folders and are not really part of the thread appear in the threaded message.

I was really happy with this feature when I first upgrade.. until I realize that it includes messages moved to other folders and TRAHSED MESSAGES????? that is the onet that makes this feature useless to me. Come on Apple, you are normally so logical with these things, but inclduing messages from the Trash is stupid.
Thanks for showing how to turn this feature off.
